Town Center CVS Pharmacy or Kingwood Drive? I have heard there were issues at their pharmacy in the past. The time has come where I must fill my Rx locally at a CVS instead of Walgreens. Which do you prefer? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 69 days ago -

Neither, unless you like standing in line for 15 minutes or more to pick up your prescription. 

TinktheSprite --- 69 days ago -

Ughhh. I was afraid of this. I really have no choice other than go to Target. Mail order for the Rx would cost $75 more. I would rather stay local. Why is so bad?? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 69 days ago -

I don't know what it is about pharmacies and inefficiency, but all of them take forever to process customers picking up prescriptions. We do mail order in 90 day batches for the same price. Depends on insurance.

I have never had issues with Walgreens. But I am not allowed to used them for more than 3 months.

I love my mailorder Pillpack Pillpack.com They dispense meds 2 weeks at a time without pill bottles instead, using disposable packets for as many times a day as you need. They are both reliable and convenient and MUCH, MUCH better than CVS Caremark Mailorder or Express Scripts.

I was happily using Pillpack for this one med and all other meds until my 3 months of use were up with one med. Now they require me to switch to CVS or Target. Locally they will give me a 75% discount with the specific Medication Savings Card on a 90 day supply. If I use CVS Mailorder or the same 90 day supply it will cost me $225 more as they don't accept Savings Cards with mail order. Odd but true. It's all such a game that we have to play or pay the bucks unnecessarily. 

DVaz --- 69 days ago -

Are you filling the prescriptions there because insurance won't cover it elsewhere? 

TinktheSprite --- 69 days ago -

Correct, DVaz. BCBS. I can fill wherever I like. But after 3 months, they consider them daily medication or chronic medication (or whatever their term is) and want me to fill at CVS, Target plus one other I don't recall, or pay full price or use their CVS Caremark Mail Order. But for this particular med, because I have a discount Savings card through the drug company, I must use a local CVS/Target pharmacy as they will not allow discounts through mail order. I can still get 90 day refills locally however. So my choice is pay $559/mo to stay with my current pharmacy. $300/90 days to go with CVS Mail Order or $75/90 days to fill locally. Unfortunately I am not rich and will choose the least expensive route. I guess I will have to choose a CVS and see what happens.

That's the truth. Add to it that their website is horribly designed. 

TinktheSprite --- 69 days ago -

Ughhh I am not looking forward to this! 

DVaz --- 69 days ago -

Tink, have you tried GoodRx (website or the App)? Saves me a lot of money. 

Texvette --- 69 days ago -

I use Kings Crossing. Love the pharmacists.
Hate the long wait to pick up prescriptions. For what they would have to pay cashiers, there should be two on duty all of the time. They are loaded with "pharmacy techs"; too cheap (or they don't care about customer service) to have cashiers on duty at the pharmacy 

TinktheSprite --- 69 days ago -

I use GoodRx and has saved me on our dog's med. But their price is $700up for a month supply. I will stick with then $75/90-days at my local CVS.

Thanks. King's Crossing it is. I like a good pharmacist even though my med is prepackaged and a no brainer for them. I will have to gather all my patience every 3 months and stand in line. Is there a time when it is less busy? Or does all of Kingwood use CVS? Maybe it's time to shoot off a letter to CVS Corporate about the long lines/wait? 

TinktheSprite --- 63 days ago -

Everything went 95% smooth with my Rx transfer to CVS. I chose the one up front on KW Dr. as even though I don't use KW Dr. much, it seemed the most convenient while driving towards home. They had some trouble applying my Savings Card but I stood my ground stating the card was good, and ask that they fix it. 30 mins later, they called back. I got my $25 Rx, not $569, thank you very much. There was no line to pick up. In fact, I was their only customer. All went well. The Pharmacist did a consult and was very nice and talk with me with respect. So far, so good. I worried for nothing.
